An ambitious man.
Born the spare, Felton Crauford is hell bent to secure his own future by amassing wealth.

To his fury, the hoyden next door does whatever she can to get in his way, all the while presenting a temptation he cannot ignore.
Felton and Georgina are caught up in an unstoppable yearning that threatens to destroy both of their plans. Worse, they are powerless to stop the white-hot desire blazing between them. Georgina must place her wager: Open her heart once more, or risk losing everything.
